Biographical Note

Enoch Ben George was born in South Carolina in 1790 and settled in the Blanco, Texas, area in 1859. His son Daniel Ball George, born in St. Clair County, Alabama, in 1823, settled as a farmer in Fisher, Comal County, Texas, around 1856, where he purchased 4610 acres of land from original grantee Michael W. Potter. He and his wife Mary George served the Confederacy in Texas. Mary George was born as Mary W. McSween in North Carolina in 1824. Her heritage has been traced back directly to Isle of Skye, Scotland, and the Clan MacLeod. In 2002, the United Daughters of the Confederacy presented a Grave Marker Dedication for Daniel Ball and Mary M. George at Pleasant Valley Cemetery, between Wimberley and Blanco, TX.
